Thanks for the comment, Old Fool. If someone does go ahead and build this gas generator, he/she would have been forewarned.

This one scares the hell out of me. No it is not the hydrogen gas production mentioned, it is the H2S - hydrogen sulfide. Hydrogen sulfide - H2S is a huge health risk, as first you smell it, but soon you can't smell it and are unaware of its presence. Even low levels are pose a large health risk. @ Higher levels death may occur. Please be fully aware of any chemical reactions you may initiate may and can kill you. PLEASE READ ABOUT H2S: http://www.osha.gov/OshDoc/data_Hurricane_Facts/hydrogen_sulfide_fact.pdf
